Working a Slab by Hand

04-27-2010 05:41 PM by davemoorefurniture | 29 comments »

If you have ever had material that is too large for your machines, fear not. In this video I demonstrate how I use a set of planes to achieve a time honored technique by flattening, thicknessing, and joining a live-edge, cherry table top. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me feedback so that I may improve in both my woodworking and video abilities.

Hey everyone, So my last blog post was about a router table for sale that I was going to pick up. It appears that it is just the table, no fence or anything of the sort. So is it still worth picking up cheap? I figure I can get a nice straight board of some sort, and some clamps…voila! Instant fence! Thoughts? -Silas

Honoring a lost friend...

04-27-2010 11:13 AM by dbhost | 37 comments »

At 12:00 midnight., our beloved yellow lab Deacon developed severe respiratory distress. We took him to the Animal Emergency Hospital in town. He was previously diagnosed with inoperable Laryngeal Paralysis. The event today was the final crisis distress from the paralysis. With no alternatives that would give him any quality of life back, we made the most humane decision we could muster. Deacon took his last breath at 2:55 A.M… Deacon was 14 years old. I have lumber from one of hi...

Shopsmith Restoration #9: Electrolysis for Rust Removal

04-27-2010 09:33 AM by PG_Zac | 14 comments »

This series has been quiet for a while, as I’ve been buying replacement parts off eBay and dealing with several small(ish) technical issues. The members of the ShopSmith owners’ forum have been extremely helpful. My thanks to the LJ members who pointed me to that forum. Here is my experience with removing rust by Electrolysis and I’m sure that many LJ’s can benefit using this technique for tool restoration. If you have any questions, just ask and I’ll do my...

This weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to go visit Ira, “Rustfever”, in Central Calif and he bestowed upon me some pieces of the greatest selection of woods I have seen in a long time. After a tour of his fantastic shop, he proceeded to take me to several “pallets” of his collection of fine woods.After about 4 hours of “drooling” and acting like a “kid in a candy store” I selected the following: 8 boards of “Red Gum Eucalyptus...

Shop in Turmoil

04-27-2010 07:45 AM by DustyNewt | 6 comments »

I have numerous projects going on. In short, all my horizontal surfaces have gone missing and it is standing room only. Here are some over-alls from the front door. This is the main cause of the melee’. We have decided to toy with silver soldering and jewelry. So, this area of our shrinking shop is being converted to a jeweler’s bench with acetylene torch, flex shaft tool, and all those other cool tools that jewelers use.I will have to find a new home for all that hardwa...

It's The Little Things

04-27-2010 06:49 AM by Troy | 2 comments »

In an attempt to find a balance to creativity and demand, I frequently do local work along the line of craft items. From end-grain cutting boards to custom novelty items to blank wood patterns, I enjoy providing the little solutions as well as the larger works. It’s always great to listen to people describe this “thing” they need that’s “yea big” and thus wide” with “said dimensions”. After a few seconds of this convincing entertainment, I nod and say “yes, I can do that”.  Custom M...

Check this out at I have been woodworking for about ten years as a hobby and recently have been thinking about the idea of starting my own woodworking business. What would you recommend?
